My husband and I went to castaways and had sushi it was great but what was better was our server Jackie! She was so helpful and kind. We have gone back several more times and she is always so sweet! The food is great and we love the singing!

“Great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Hidden away on 15th street, oceanside, we had dinner one evening and had the fish prepared "shipwrecked"! Its to die for. We returned for lunch a few weeks later and had the sushi. Its a little pricy for what you get, but is really good.

“Outstanding as always!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

I love being a regular at Castaway! I decided to have a new experience at Castaway and brought my own fresh caught fish. Myself and my three friends had an amazing feast of awesomely prepared dishes. The preparations were amazing , the honey buns and salads were awesome, the service was impeccable. Thank you to John and Arlene, owners extraordinaire, Sara the perfect bartender, Lauren the amazing server and Freddy in the kitchen who made it all perfect. No matter where I live, I will never stop being a regular!

“A great little out of the way place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

I had read about Castaway on Tripadvisor a few times, but never ventured far enough off the main road to find it. I promise you, it is worth looking for. We have been back a few times, and enjoyed it every time. The sushi is super fresh (the Big Pine Roll is awesome!), the portions are generous, so you never leave hungry, and the servers are friendly and pleasant. We plan to make this a regular spot on our frequent meals out, and hope to have more to brag about!

“hidden treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We are lucky enough to have a friend who lives in Marathon who took us to this restaurant. We never would have found it on our own because it is well off the highway. The fish was outstanding and fresh. We loved the sushi, oysters, and steamed clams. My husband tried the steak tartar and it was wonderful. We LOVED the large selection of draft beers--terrific!!!! Fun, comfortable ambiance and the people who work there are wonderful. Go find it!!!!
